    Armbars in a real fight?

    Has anyone ever used an armbar in a real fight(ie outside the ring/gym? How did it work out?

    If you have position and control for an Armbar, Ground and Pound is probably better it lets you disengage more easily. Unless you mean a cool standing armbar after a throw like in Judo.

    the idea is to pound him ... and when he reached up with his hands to push you off or block ....

    armbar him ...

    I used to bounce at a few bars and used standing arm bars all the time, but ya never go to the ground in a crowd if you can help it.

    no ground armbars, i have used the mata leao several times and the kimura to cuff retards

    however i did have a guy go for an armbar on another patron, while he was doing that i kicked him off before he broke the other dudes arm

    I always wondered about that... lets say you'r attacked, you take the guy down and get him in one of those armbars where your lying perpendicular to his body. What do you do then?
